Psoriasis has no set timeline. It can appear all at once or over a long stretch of time. Often, it appears in small itchy patches or dots. The dots can be covered in scaly skin or may be pink in color. Depending on the type of psoriasis, however, the symptoms will vary.
- Erythodermic psoriasis results in intense redness over
a large area of skin.
- Guttate psoriasis appears as small, pink-red dots.
- Inverse psoriasis causes irritation in the armpits, groin and other areas of overlapping skin.
- Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis. It is identified by the appearance of red patches of skin covered in flaky scales.
- Pustular psoriasis results in white blisters surrounded by irritated skin.
